My most recent drawings portray Greenland´s melting ice. This body of work documents climate change through art. In a deeper sense, this series addresses the concept of saying goodbye on both a personal and global level. Continuing the story of polar melt, which is the main cause of rising seas, I followed the meltwater from the Arctic to the equator. I spent September 2013 in the Maldives, the lowest and flattest country in the world, collecting material and inspiration to create a body of work celebrating and artistically representing a nation that could be entirely underwater within this century.
